Employees field of action

A dynamic and reliable partnership.

We are successful because of our employees. It is not our halls, machines or tools that have made us successful over the decades – it is the people who pave the way for a better future. This is a fundamental principle of our PPx corporate policy.

We also want to create long-term added value for those who make our business success possible in the first place. We therefore see it as a core mission to ensure safe working conditions for our employees whilst promoting their health and education. The concepts and processes we have developed for this purpose apply to all areas of the company’s work. This not only covers our staff who work in shifts to ensure the quality of our products, but also those who work in the administrative and commercial departments.

 

As an industrial company in a global, dynamic market and a sector that is always in the public eye, we face great challenges every day – in terms of production efficiency and effectiveness, calculation viability, our presence on the global market, digital change and resource-saving product solutions. To take on these tasks responsibly, we rely on our committed and proactive employees. We can count on them, day after day. After all, we believe that everyone is important. Our contribution to safety at work, health and education for our employees provides proof of this maxim every single day.

“The myriad of opportunities that everyone is given here creates a strong sense of togetherness – a special Pöppelmann feeling. I find that quite unique.”

Thomas Hannöver,
Head of Initial Sampling at K-TECH® and German Champion in cyclo-cross
